Cowpet Bay condo description

Enjoy the view of Cowpet Bay in the Caribbean from the living room, the bedrooms, or any of the three private balconies of our condominium unit at Wyndham’s Elysian Resort. There you can relax, unwind, take in the extraordinary, soothing beauty and consider the opportunities before you. We are in a prime location, between the Ritz-Carlton and the St. Thomas Yacht Club ten miles from the airport on the east end of the island.

Do you need extreme relaxation? You don’t have to leave the Elysian – everything you need is right on site! Here you’re not a prisoner of the resort, but you may simply choose to spend most of your vacation on premises!

It’s an easy walk from our unit to our beautiful, fully outfitted palm treed white sand beach for swimming, resting, sunbathing, and snorkeling (we can make snorkeling equipment available for you!). You’ll also find right next to the beach a beautiful landscaped pool with hot tub, two fabulous beachside restaurants and bars (with nightly entertainment), fitness room, spa, water sport rental shack, tennis court, volleyball court and sundries store.

Do you want to explore some of the most beautiful sights in the world, partake in virtually any water/boating activity, lounge at several of the world’s most beautiful beaches, enjoy extraordinary restaurants, take day trips to St. John or the British Virgin Islands, shop in world renowned & duty-free Charlotte Amalie, Golf in a Caribbean paradise …. ? The list goes on and on!! It’s all here for you. U.S. Territory & no passport required (unless you venture to the BVI)!

We are two miles from Red Hook, the center of east end activity on St. Thomas. You get the regional ferries in Red Hook, shop at boutiques and for groceries, have a full Marina available, and enjoy the many restaurants and bars in the town. Emergency medical services are right there in Red Hook.

All linens are provided and the kitchen is fully outfitted. Each room has a private balcony, A/C, a ceiling fan, cable TV and telephones. One bedroom has two beds (one queen size, the other double), sleeping four comfortably (or 2, with a large area to toss clothes and things!). The other bedroom has a King bed for two. The center room has a full kitchen, dining area, and living room with a queen size Murphy bed that sleeps two comfortably. Each of the three rooms has a private bathroom. Washer/Dryer is in the unit, making it easy for you to pack light, bringing only your tropical wear!

Since you rent directly from us, the owner's, we have an expedited arrival process with no involvement with the front desk. You will arrive at our unit, and go directly to vacation mode! We are available to consult and advise you on every aspect of your vacation, and have supporting resources on island to handle any special requests or situations. We will make sure you’ll want to return often to our getaway!

                            We enjoyed our time at the condo - we found the condo to spacious, comfortable, clean and modern, with amenities such as a dishwasher, and washer dryer being put to good use. We also liked the fact that the condo can be configured as a 1 bedroom, 2 bath or a 2 bedroom, 3 bath, so lot of space for families and groups travelling together. The owner was kind enough to provide us with a pack and play, so it was nice to have one less thing we needed to pack for our toddler. As for the resort, we find the Elysian to be modern and well-maintained. The beach is a very short walk from the condo, so you don't have to carry much to the beach, and the pool is large and also a great option if you have had enough of the sand. On the property, Sangria's is a decent spot for casual fare, and Caribbean Fish Market is quite good, although it is pricier. But it is very convenient to have both options on the property. The location of the Elysian Resort is great given its proximity to other Nearby the Elysian resort, there are a number of conveniences and attractions - Red Hook is a five minute drive, which has quite a few other dining options, Coral World is about a 15 - 20 minute drive. Next door, the Ritz Carlton offers some other dining options as well. It's probably worth it to drive in for dinner, but I don't see much point in paying those types of prices for the Ritz Carlton accommodations. Tip: we also really liked the Secret Harbour beach - a lovely beach which is a 5 - 10 minute drive from the Elysian Resort. Overall, a very strong option for people who prefer to self-cater, while also have options and conveniences on the property. We were supposed to arrive on February 5, but our flight was cancelled. We ended up arriving one day later than we should have. The owner, Paul was kind enough to refund us for the first night given the flight cancellation. We were disappointed that we could not extend our trip with the airline by a day by rescheduling the scheduled departure one day later!

                            The owners were fantastic to work with, and provided a lot of additional information, which was so helpful since we had never been to St. Thomas before. The condo is very roomy and was very clean. The amenities were very nice as well, large pool with waterfall and on site restaurants and bars. On a side note we went on day sail and snorkeling with New New Horizons Day Sail, with Captain Mark and his mate Lauren. It was amazing! Would highly recommend.

                            I need a relaxing break from work and this was perfect. I could be as busy or lazy as I wanted without a care in the world. The condo was clean and had everything I needed and then some. The restaurant was excellent - food, bar and atmosphere. I spent most of my time at the beach but the pool was nice and good for families. Perfect time away.

                            Spent a wonderful week in this condo. Rented both units for 2 couples and it couldn't have worked out any better! Total privacy when needed and a nice large common living / cooking area to hang out together. Very Clean & Very comfortable throughout, especially the beds. Supplied with everything one could possibly need... The owner takes exceptional care of this property. Thank you Paul for all the snorkel gear, we had the most "amazing time " discovering so many beautiful fish, coral & sea turtles :-) We will return, hopefully soon!!

                            The condo we stayed in was very nice. Having coffee, coffee filters, and other items to start the day after arriving so late was a blessing. The place was clean and well maintained. The Elysian is a beautiful resort and kept so clean. Each morning people were cleaning and maintaining the grounds. My view from the balcony was of the ocean and it was so exciting to eat breakfast at the table and enjoy this view. Having the snorkeling gear at the property was wonderful. We used it everyday of our vacation. That was such a nice item to have at our disposal. Also having washer and dryer were very nice too. The only negative was that the key was not where it was suppose to be on arrival and we had to wait. Speaking to the previous occupant he stated they had the same problem. This was a terrible way to start our stay. Once in the condo everything was so nice and comfortable we forgot about this inconvenience. The owner was very apologetic. I highly recommend this condo for its location to everything on the east side of the Island and also for the comfort and relaxation you can find there.

                            Just wanted to thank you for your hospitality- we loved your condo! It was perfect for our family- the place is terrific- we ate at the little restaurant every night! First night was rough getting in and then driving. But thank goodness for your amazing directions- we could have never found the place without them! Weather sort of cooperated- poured every night but the days were overcast with a drizzle- didn't stop us from doing everything. And might have actually been better than the hot sun. My kids had an amazing time- and we did too! Thanks again for everything!! Lorraine & Jim

                            Just got back from a wonderful visit to this condo with a party of 5. Usually stay at the Anchorage nearby but decided to to try the Elysian for a change. Very happy we did! This unit was large, comfortable, the views were great, the furnishings were nice, and each unit has it's own balcony. We enjoyed the fact that this unit has it's own floor in the building, no other units next to it, felt more private that way. It was quite nice to come back to every day after a long day in the sun. The grounds of the Elysian were much nicer than we expected, and noticeably nicer than the Anchorage. The beach was clean, large, water beautiful, and lots of fun activitities to do on site. When we stayed local (as opposed to going to St. John or the BVI) we kayaked around the bay, including over to Christmas Island for snorkeling, which was even better than the snorkeling just off the beach to the left. Pool is really nice as well. The owners were also great to deal with. We'll be back for sure!

                            Paul and Pat were excellent in communicating with us. Paul was always ready to answer any questions I might have and was very honest with his answers. Pat arranged our airport transfers and gave us great suggestions about excursions. The condo had a beautiful view of Cowpet Bay and was very nicely appointed inside. It was a perfect size for 4 women. The beds were very comfortable and we had more than enough room renting all 3 rooms. We had everything we needed especially in the kitchen. We loved its proximity to red hook where we took advantage of the ferry to St. John and sapphire marina. The pool and hot tub are fabulous. Stacy at the activities hut was a joy and helped us out a lot. The hamburgers at the beachside bar/ restaurant were excellent. The other higher end restaurant was nice to have within walking distance but we felt it overpriced for the value. Go next door to the Ritz. Our only complaint was the bay was small and you don't have a view of all the other islands across from st. Thomas. However, for the money, the condo was great!
